Hacking trial hears Coulson voicemails for Clarke aide

Hannah Pawlby, an aide to then home secretary Charles Clarke, had her phone hacked by the News of the World over false rumours of an affair, a jury has heard.

Recordings of Hannah Pawlby's voicemails had been made by private investigator Glenn Mulcaire, the court heard.

He also gathered contact details for her parents, grandparents and brother.

Prosecutors say the NoW editor Andy Coulson, who denies phone hacking, later contacted her about the story.

Recordings of voice messages left by Mr Coulson on Ms Pawlby's phone were recovered from Mulcaire's home and played to the court.
